Uncle

Hey there. Long time no write. Yeah…well…been working hard, trying to find some sleep, enjoying the presence of someone new, beautiful and profound in my life, and also just riding the post-solstice, post-peak, post-energy of the summer phase (for me) as I navigate and look toward the fall, winter, next year, and beyond. The obviousContinue reading “Uncle”

Riley and Fletcher

Hi everyone and hope you are well! Just following up with some words and pics on the two pups that remain from Chloe’s litter–Riley and Fletcher.  They’re doing great and have now joined me on the simpler chores of the farm–typically filling water for poultry and sheep.  They still nurse a bit but have shownContinue reading “Riley and Fletcher”

The Rising

Good morning everyone– A quick but likely verbose note before heading into today’s market. A teary-eyed (after she left…) and fond farewell yesterday to Keeley (below) as she left for her new home.  Four other pups appear sold (two possibly leaving today and two over the next week) which leaves three looking for homes.  AllContinue reading “The Rising”

Chloe’s 2018 Pups

Okay–FINALLY–getting to posting these pics that were taken earlier in the week of Chloe’s eight pups.  So sorry–and thank you all for your patience. The reason there are multiple pics of Riley, Brady and Fletcher is–honestly–they look so similar and their differentiations are in such odd spots that I and others are still kinda trainingContinue reading “Chloe’s 2018 Pups”

Puppy introductions

The puppies (four female and two male) will be five weeks old tomorrow and that means they start to get blended puppy food, eggs and thawed livestock organs for the first time along with continuing to nurse. I tried to get some pics (unassisted) and this proved to be a folly.  They were in nursingContinue reading “Puppy introductions”

Mid-Season Transitions

Genevieve and I have separated and are on the route to getting divorced.  There.  I’ve put it out there.  She has moved into town and I will be staying on the farm.
